Virginia Yount: Unsustainable Attainment
October 20 - November 12, 2010
1710 Lavaca Street, Austin, TX 78701
Women and Their Work present Austin based artist Virginia Yount in the exhibition Unsustainable Attainment. Through her paintings, collages, and sculptures, Yount depicts a near-future society of hoarders, shut-ins and escapists. Her work addresses environmental and economic collapse, surveillance, self-obsession, anxiety, and collecting by incorporating imagery of anxious piles of clutter, unread books, graffiti-covered land, discarded lottery tickets, paint piles, and the gathered remnants of a struggling society.
